Little Secrets of Beauty Blogger Bhumika Thakkar

Hello Team Cravers!

Blogging industry is growing so rapidly in India. So we thought of introducing you to some of our favourite Indian Youtubers and Bloggers. Who better to start with than Bhumika Thakkar of New Love- Makeup. We have been following Bhumika for over 1.5 years now and absolutely love the work she does. 

Here are few questions we asked her!

1. What inspired you to start a beauty based blog?

I started my blog in September 2010, there were hardly any beauty blogs in India then. I used to read & follow 3-4 and absolutely loved them. I was always a skincare & makeup junkie and hence I thought to have my own platform to express my views. And thus started my blog New Love- Makeup

2. Why Youtube?

Youtube is a new thing for me, I have been doing it since about 11 months now. I always wanted to but the recording, editing,etc. takes a lot of time and it is difficult to manage both blog and Youtube, hence was in two minds. Finally took the plunge and I am glad I did. I enjoy it now :)

3. If not youtube then what would you have done?

I would have continued with my blogging. If not blog, I am a practicing Chartered Accountant. Just that I don't practice anymore, coz my blog and Youtube take up all my time.

4. As a child did you enjoy applying your mom’s makeup? Any particular incident’s you’d like to share?

Oh yes, I did. In fact, my mom used to deck me up on certain special ocassions where I am going to be clicked, etc. I have old pictures with red lipstick and blush :D

5. What are the three Beauty products that you always have on you?

Eyeliner, Lipstick/Lipgloss/Matte Liquid Lipstick, Mascara

6. Tell us three other youtubers that you love and religiously follow?

Jacyln Hill, Teni Panosion, Kathleen Lights, The Makeup Chair, Chriselle Lim, Wendy's Lookbook, Ann Le, I can't pick :D
